According to reports, Napoli's £150 million cost for target Victor Osimhen has dashed Erik ten Hag's dreams of signing a top striker for Manchester United. With the support he needed to bring Antony and Lisandro Martinez to Old Trafford after working with the two at Ajax, United manager Ten Hag has attracted a lot of his objectives. The Dutchman was also granted the money to sign Casemiro, but others believe that a big name up front is the final piece of the puzzle.
The Portuguese international was one of Ten Hag's alternatives before his debut season since Man United invested to get him back to Old Trafford in 2021. But, since Ronaldo was let to go by mutual consent, Wout Weghorst, who was brought in on loan, has been the sole new striker.
